Title: Help me help my mom with cancer
Post by: xodus8 on May 29, 2013, 01:52:56 PM
About 5 months ago my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer, since then she has been unable to work.
She is currently getting chemotherapy , she is having a very difficult time affording every day necessities.

I just noticed on the forum a fellow DDFer raised some money for a choson & kallah through a raffle. I will be copying and pasting the rules from that thread.

Here is the plan of action for all our generous DDF'ers:

I am raffling off $100 cash, or more.

Every donation of $18 is one chance to win.

Every donation (after the first 10) of $18 brings the jackpot up $5.

So if 11 people donate, the jackpot will be $105, 20 people donate, the jackpot will be $200.

There is no cap on the jackpot, there is no limit on how much you can donate.

The entire sum (less the jackpot) will be given directly to my mother.

If you are interested in sponsoring the jackpot, please PM me.

The jackpot will be drawn Thursday night 6/5/2013 12:00PM EST


To participate:

Send your donation via Chase QP or Google Wallet

xodus8@gmail.com

Please include your DDF user name in the memo.

After you donate write your name in the wiki in one of the spots provided.

LETS MAKE THE JACKPOT GROW.


Also if anyone knows of any Jewish organizations that help pay for co payments and a orginaztion that can provide her wih a wig would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all and Tziku Limitzvoth!

No offense, but I am not sure if that many people know you in real life.

If you want to have same success as Yeki89, provide a few references of heimishe organizations or rabanim, or at least 3-4 active forum members that know the situation.

Just my opinion, feel free to disagree.

My rabbi knows about my mom's illness, My mom doesn't want to tell him or anyone that she is having financial difficulties. I can PM 2-3 members an official report from beth israel that says her diagnosis.

Do you know anyone here on the forums?

 It would be really nice if we could help you out but I'm pretty sure you'll raise more money if someone can vouch for you.
May she have a refuah Shleima.

They could / will help out or redirect you to an organization that could help.
(they help with meals, transportation and possibly help you get insurance to cover some of the co-pays etc)

Refuah Shleima to your Mom.

Definitely contact RCCS - they were able to work miracles for me. Rabbi Meisels personally had the world's top doctor (no exaggerations, here) for my type come home from safari in Africa a day early to accommodate MY schedule (the yumim tovim were coming up and we had to start chemo). Unbelievable what they are capable of doing.

Chai Lifeline was also very helpful. They're definitely more geared towards children, but were able to help me a lot.
Title: Re: Help me help my mom with cancer
Post by: Mutty on May 29, 2013, 11:48:36 PM
Unfortunately, my daughter (Michal Bas Fraida) has CA and is going through the process and IYH your mother, my daughter and all cholim should have a quick refuah shelaymah. Here's two things I want to add (to Chai Lifeline and RCCS - both a must):
Check with your medical insurance. My daughter got a beautiful shaitel covered by Oxford! The shaitel company has to be legit. Second, call Social Security. There's some kind of benefit that comes through them. A friend of ours has a son with CA who's 19 years old and never worked. I heard he's collecting $700 a month. I don't know details or the rules on that, but you have nothing to lose by calling them.
Again, a refuah shelaymah bekorov!

I thank G-d I have been blessed and hope to continue to be blessed that I do not have to ask for charity. It is one of the hardest things a person has to go through in a bad situation. And I pray no one on DDF ever has to ask for charity, but when people do it is touching to see the response.

First of all, let me wish your entire family chizuk and your mum a refua sheleimo

I dont think such zedakka events should be held here.
ddf forums was made to discuss deals, travel.... yeki was a long standing member and if he decided to post a zedakka case people knew it was urgent, but i dont see why every new member, that didnt do much for the ddf in the past should just start a fundraising. soon it will be like a shachris here, to get to the beth medras i have to pass all meshulochim. I think there is a time and place for everything, but not here....a lot of the longtime members dont write alot on the forums anymore, as every day there is another thread on the same subject and its very hard to see whats tachlis...this will not help the site at all

sorry if i sound very to the point, but these are my feelings on the matter

I recently became involved in a hachnasas kalla and found that through some hard work dealing with people and organizations I was able to put together (in pledges so far!) much more than can possibly be raised on DDF.
So to the OP I am really sorry to hear about your mother and you really should call all of the above mentioned organizations. Even if they can't help chances are they can point you in the right direction. ויה"ר שתזכה לרפואה שלמה בקרוב בתוך שאר חולי ישראל

Not appropriate.  Like with meshulachim, you have no obligation to give.  If you're bothered about the clutter, I can think of plenty of threads (we are in JS after all) that have far less tachlis than this one.

I'm going to have to agree with chuchem on this one. Let me begin by wishing the OPs mother a speedy Refuah Shaleima!

Although this forum doesn't have a mission statement, the description of every board is it's mission statement. There are many places where raising money would be appropriate but this is just not the place. Yeki89 was a one time exception.

When it comes to tzedaka, people tend attack the collector/appeal so they don't feel they have an obligation to give.

Before my dollars, here's my two cents!
Some comments I'm seeing here surprise me. I'll leave it at that.
If I did the math right, for donations of 180 you're planning on giving back 100! Wow. You don't even get that in Chinese auctions! You end up with a mere 80! I would like to ask for permission to do the following. I would like to donate as well, but I would prefer my donation does not go into the cheshbon for the "raffle". Please let me know if anyone objects. Also, in order to donate, please explain how I can use one of the two methods mentioned above, since I don't know the mechanics of using those methods. Or give me an easier one and I'll send it right in.
If anyone objects to my leaving it out of the cheshbon, I guess that's too bad for me. I'll donate anyway, but if my name is pulled, please pull again for someone else.
Thanks.

I just donated.

Refuah Shelema!


Guys If a shnoorer came to your door won't you give him $5-$20?

Why is this any different?

If you can't afford a ticket, just sending the OP $5 would help.

+1
I also wouldn't mind if you'd like to raise the donor threshold (or lower the starting jackpot amount).  I agree with Mutty that its kind of silly to collect 180 and keep only 80.
+1 I didn't donate to win the jackpot, I did it to give tzedakah. If I win you can keep the money.

I want to thank everyone so far for donating.

Quick question does anyone know where we can get a wig ? Either through insurance or some kind of organization that deals with this?

I answered before that you should check with your medical insurance. That's how my daughter got one. The only thing is you have to use a reputable, legal wig company. Hatzlacha.
